A lecture-recital on George Eliot was
given in the chapel by Miss Mabellc
Biggart of Now York City, last Thurs
day evening. The entertainment was

eulogized Georgo Eliot and Frances
Willard for whi t they did towards the
advancement of women. She gave a
short analysis of George Eliot's liter
ftry greatness. To show the marvel

Our hearts are ever touched by the
infirmity of our fellowmen, but prob
ably the blind come in for the largest
share of our sympathy. However,
many of our blind brethren astonish
us by their achievements, accomplish
ing what would be wonderful in a
man possessed of his five senses.
Possibly the most astonishing of all
blind men is the French sculptor, Vi
dal, who is stone blind, but models
wonderful statues of animals. How
can e do this without seeing? Simply
by touch. He lives surrounded oy ani
mals of all kinds, and is ever patting
and caressing them. When he wants
to model a horse he begins by studying
the legs. He stoops uown by the ani
mal, talking to it and patting ic con
stantly, and says, "Come, I must ex
amine your legs. Don't you move.
Nov I must examine your chest.
Come, my friend, be quiet, or I shall
fail to catch your likeness."
When he wanted to study a wild
animal the task was more difficult.
Vidal first studied the works of other
sculptors, the skeletons of the animal,
even stuffed specimens. One day when
he had decided that he wanted to model
a lion he felt that he must study a liv
ing model. He did not hesitate to face
the danger, but entered a lion's cage,
accompanied by the trainer. He felt
him, caressed him, studied him atten
tively and for a long time, and when
he came away he modeled his "Lion
Roaring," one of his masterpieces.
Seen in his studio ai work, it could
hardly be believed that the sculptor
was blind were it not that at times
he goes over his work by feeling it
with those ten sensitive fingers that
take the place of nis eyes.
In many instances blindness could
have been avoided had the detect been
cared for in time. If you are suffering
with your eyes, ears, nose, threat, call
on Drs. Seymour & Cox, 1219 K street,
& YOU CAN ENTER AT ANY TIME.
